New Hairdo!

Finally my parents decide to cut off my Donald Trump Comb Over. Dad did the honors while mom held me. I think they took an inch off. Dad wanted to cut more but mom didn't want to. I think she is afraid that it will never grow back. I also got my first teeth - two on the bottom! Now I am really wanting to eat dad's food!

My bro James still makes me laugh. If you ask him, "Who is your brother?" he will say, "Parker!". Last Friday he got shoe inserts put in his new runners. James was born with flat feet so this will help give his feet the arch they need so he can jump, run and climb stairs.

Is Baby Parker Spoiled?

Tonight Michael and I went to a movie and left the boys with Mere & Pere (my parents). Our first get away since James' arrival. Two and half hours into "Transformers" (a movie to watch only if you are paid to) the cell vibrates and my mom leaves a message suggesting we come home 'cause Parker has been crying non-stop. We speed walk to the car and Michael drives the same way he did when he drove me to the hospital when I was in labor - fast. We arrive home and there are my parents standing at the door with Parker red face and crying. I rush to baby Parker and he stops crying immediately. I nurse him, daddy holds him and I nurse him some more till he passes out. I say to my parents, "He is so spoiled!", but they refuse to believe it. "No, no, no. He is a baby. He's not spoiled. He's just used to being with his mom and dad." I know Parker is spoiled and yet I'm not ready to do something about it because I love it - most of the time. Maybe one day I'll come to regret it but till than I'll enjoy his devotion!

PS - How did James do with being away from his mom and dad for the very first time? You guessed it, he was a gem!

Parker and I flew to Vancouver yesterday for his third cast while James hung out with his Dad at home. We are going back next week for a new cast and at the end of the month Parker will get fitted with boots and bars. He will need to wear them during the day. Once he starts walking he'll be sporting special shoes and only needing to wear the boots and bars at night till he is 3 years old. I learned that clubfoot occurs in approximately 1 in every 750 babies and is two times more common in boys than in girls. Every Tuesday the BC Children's Hospital holds a Clubfoot Clinic so we see lots of babies receiving this innovative treatment.

Today James had his first visit to the dentist and he impressed his parents.
Dr. Kalinski (nee Painchaud) was able to polish James' teeth and give him a fluoride treatment without James squirming too much. No cavities! Yippee! (www.aestheticdentalclinic.com)

One more thing Parker has now started eating cereal once a day. Perhaps with a fuller belly Parker might just decide to sleep through the night!

My Foot!

Tuesday I got botox injected in my leg to fix my foot. Dr. Alverez said I was a very brave boy and she also said I was really cute. I like her! Next Tuesday mommy and I go back to Vancouver to get a new cast.

Here is a picture of my cousin Noah. He is so cool! He wants to be a spy when he grows up! And my bro is doing good too. He is the funniest person I know.
